Gialloro

< Back

The colour is light straw – yellow tending to pale green. Its crystal clarity is laced with a persistent perlage of fine bubbles. The bouquet, although persistent and intensely fruity, is extremely delicate which brings mature golden apples and acacia flowers readily to mind. It is gently sweet and fresh on the palate and pleasantly light in alcohol, extremely smooth and well-balanced with long and fruity finish. With its great versatility, Giall’Oro can be enjoyed equally well as an aperitif or to enhance the close of a meal. Indeed, this is a wine that can brighten up any hour of the day.

Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Area

Inside the wide territory of Prosecco DOC (Controlled Denomination of Origin) the historical and small area of Valdobbiadene DOCG(Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin) stands out for its excellent quality grapes and its wine is named VALDOBBIADENE PROSECCO SUPERIORE.
The Valdobbiadene grape is grown in the northern part of the Marca Trevigiana in a zone extending from Colle Umberto to Valdobbiadene, the ancient zone of Valduplavensis, “...where the vine blossoms eternally...” (St.Venantius Fortunatus 535-603 AD).
Valdobbiadene is indisputably the most interesting vine-growing area in terms of quality and
indeed its vineyards have always produced the most prestigious and fragrant Prosecco Superiore.
The presence of many old and sometimes very old vines contributes to raising the quality of the Valdobbiadene vineyards. Thanks to its considerable root system, an old Prosecco vine, which may be defined as “the memory of the region”, successfully copes with the varied climate so typical of the Valdobbiadene hills, thereby ensuring constantly high quality year by year.

“Vitis etiam provectioris aetatis facit uvas meliores et melius vinum, sed facit uvas pauciores proportione suae quantitatis quam juvenis”.

Alberto Magno (1193-1280)
